It seems like Abercrombie & Fitch gets in some kind of legal trouble every few months, so the timing was spot-on for police removing “obscene” ads from its store in Virginia Beach. The ads in question showed a topless girl whose nipples were the only things covered and a group of men going commando under their jeans. Honestly, I’ve seen worse from other stores—and from Abercrombie, come to think of it—so I almost feel obligated to defend them. Then again, this is the same company that made unfunny, racist T-shirts for clueless white kids and thongs for preteens. So, screw ’em.
